Blackberry Cherry Smoothie

 

We have Sprung forward and lost an hour of sleep but gained an hour of daylight. The first Official Day of Spring will be March 20th, but you can enjoy spring like flavors anytime with my Rainbow of Smoothies!

Depending on your mood and what color you’re feeling, you can whip up a batch of Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, or Blue. And now finally, today we bring you a nice plum Purple smoothie.

Blackberries are a very vibrant color when blended, and great for hiding all sorts of nutritious things. Keep that in mind for the future.

The deep color of blackberries and cherries comes from their anthocyanins, a super healthy antioxidant you should strive to eat daily. And with a smoothie, there is no excuse, since you literally need about 30 seconds to toss everything in the blender and press a button to have breakfast ready to go.

Oh, you can do something good for your health that is also super fast and delicious?? Sign me up!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blackberries
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen cherries
  • 1/2 cup fruit juice or coconut water
  • 1/2 cup yogurt

Put all ingredients in a blender, and blend until smooth. If using fresh berries, you can add a handful of ice for a different texture.

  1. Your smoothies look yummy! I love smoothies because they are fun, easy to make, delicious, and can contain so many healthy phytonutrients! I saw in a previous post you used Blue Majik. How do you like it? I have never used it before.

    1. Thank you, a high compliment from the antioxidant smoothie master! It makes me happy that other people know what amla is, and actually use it 🙂 I do not have the Blue Majik powder, I just found it in researching blue smoothie ideas. That’s how Pinterest gets those perfectly deep blue colors! I do want to work it into the food budget, I’m sure I’ll have to get it online because I’ve never seen it at a Kroger or ALDI! I’ll let you know, if I get it, how I like it!
